Public Health 2030: A Scenario Exploration – Institute for Alternative Futures – 2014
“What will be the greatest accomplishments for public health in the next two decades? What obstacles may prove insurmountable? What will public health look like in the U.S. in the year 2030? What should public health leaders be doing today? What do we want public health to be in the U.S. in 2030 that can inform today’s agenda?
Public health leaders have an opportunity to influence which future unfolds and how. IAF has developed alternative public health scenarios to invite readers to recognize that the future is uncertain, but can be bounded using the knowledge we have today. IAF’s Public Health 2030 project and report equips leaders with a broader awareness of the relevant trends and forces so that they can more adroitly shape the future of public health. The national report also offers “robust” strategies that were developed by leaders and experts from across the U.S. at a national workshop, and will be effective and advance the field no matter what the future holds.

Organizations and communities can use the scenarios as a living tool for strategy formulation by using them to: (1) Test whether current strategies will be effective in the different scenarios. (2) Formulate strategies to more effectively adapt to the changing environment. (3) Assure that strategic plans address the larger picture and longer-term futures for the public health community.
